US Steel Stocks Pop after China Tariff Scare

US steel stocks (XME) U.S. Steel Corporation (X) and AK Steel (AKS) are trading sharply higher today. Nucor (NUE) and Steel Dynamics (STLD) are also in the green. We saw a selling spree in US steel stocks yesterday as markets feared that China could also be exempt from the Section 232 steel tariffs.
